Patrick Paris is completely self-educated as a designer, and according to him this is precisely one of the aspects that give his work such characteristic individuality. A second element is his passion for concrete, so heavy, yet still fragile, so cold, yet also very delicate, so unlikely ... Experimenting with the shades of colour and the effects of the material, Patrick creates surprising, enigmatic objects that do not always reveal their primary function at first glance. They are objects that challenge their original purpose with absurd ergonomics or with their surprising forms. Together with Serax, Patrick Paris aims to evince a bit of austerity for a world totally obsessed with comfort. And what better way to do this than with a wink and a nod?
